MLAs from Udaipur, Kota, Bharatpur divisions meet Congress leaders


Senior Congress leaders were holding individual meetings with party MLAs from Udaipur, Kota, and Bharatpur divisions on Tuesday to get their feedback ahead of the Rajasthan Assembly polls due later this year. Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, Congress state in-charge Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa, and state president Govind Singh Dotasra were interacting with the MLAs in the party’s new office in Jaipur.
While Congress leaders say the objective of the exercise, which began on Monday, is to get feedback from the MLAs about their constituency, it has come days after senior party leader Sachin Pilot sat on a day-long fast alleging inaction by the Gehlot government into allegations of corruption during the previous BJP rule. Pilot, who has been involved in a leadership tussle with Gehlot, renewed his demand on Monday, saying, “It’s been a week now, but no action has been taken”.
The Tonkawa MLA skipped his interaction with party leaders on Monday and instead addressed two scheduled public meetings in Shahpura (Jaipur) and Khetri (Jhunjhunu). Tonk comes under the Ajmer division. Gehlot tweeted photos of the one-on-one discussion held with MLAs from Ajmer and Jodhpur divisions on Monday night.
The chief minister said necessary suggestions were received regarding ‘Mission 2030’ to make Rajasthan the number-one state by then. According to the schedule released by the party, a one-day workshop will be organised on Wednesday in which the MLAs and other party leaders and workers will participate. On Thursday, the MLAs from Bikaner and Jaipur divisions will interact with Randhawa, Gehlot, and Dotasra.
